Kay, M.D., practice president and joint replacement surgeon. “Our new doctors are both extensively trained subspecialists who share our commitment to keeping our community healthy and active, and we are proud to welcome them to our team.”

An Indiana native, Dr. Colanese completed his undergraduate studies at Earlham College in Richmond, followed by earning his medical degree at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis. In Missouri, Dr. Colanese completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and his advanced foot and ankle surgery fellowship at Washington University Physicians in St. Louis.
